I also label myself as a "shy girl". Unless I know you well, you probably won't see my outgoing side. When I'm around friends though, I become this fun, loud, incredibly sassy girl, and I like that side of me.

Since becoming a business owner, I've had to do a lot of things outside my comfort zone in order to create the business that I want. Even though it scares the hell out of me sometimes, I do things anyway because I can see the big picture and what I need to do to achieve my goals. As I do more things out of my comfort zone I feel more and more connected to this outgoing girl inside.

You struck a cord when you said to focus more on being kind to myself and stop comparing myself to others. I think if I can focus on those tips I'll be able to break down even more "shy" walls that I've created over the years. :)


This entry totally could have be written by me. I'm 100% right there with you as I am slowly coming into my own later in my life and finding my words. I'm slowly coming out of my comfort zone and realizing it ain't half bad. I'm starting to get used to doing the things that would have given me anxiety in the past. I wish I could go back and tell my younger self to come out of hiding and live life because for the most part it is safe on the other side. :)

I've been meaning to comment on this since you posted it! I can definitely relate. I hated my hair when I was younger and used to dye it different colors & straighten it in high school. At some point between high school and college I decided to just let it be, but I didn't really start to appreciate it until a few years after that. I still have issues with my hair and my looks sometimes, but I'm so glad that the days of burning my forehead with a flat iron are behind me!
I've also always considered myself to be shy. In some ways I've become more brave as I've gotten older, but in some ways I'm more in my shell than I was when I was in my twenties. I put myself out of my comfort zone, but then end up beating myself up afterwards for something I did or didn't do. So I'm working on all of those things, trying to make peace with myself and be kinder to myself. Like you said, it's a work in progress!

And just for the record, your hair looks fierce whether it's up or down!
